Einstein Brothers make the best bagels. Fresh and addictive. Never disappointed except when you arrive after the morning crowd has cleaned out the supply. So arrive early, wait, yes there is usually a little wait here. But to leave with one of the tasty bagels, Spinach Florentine being my favorite, is worth it.

This is an easy one. The place is dirty, the staff is clueless, the food is over-priced, and the coffee is undrinkable. Need another reason not to go?

I went into Einstein Bagels yesterday morning for a quick breakfast sandwich. This is probably my 3rd time in this place in the 11 years I've lived here. I didn't know the menu but knew I wanted something simple. When asked what I wanted, I asked for a turkey sausage and cheddar. When the man asked me a another question,... More

This restaurant continues to disappoint. The bagels are so soft, they should be called rolls. I will avoid them if I can.

They are slow and disorganized when taking orders. If you want a dozen, they don't have enough or can't handle it for some other reason. They slice bagels unevenly. The cashier will stop and talk to others, or go make a coffee while you wait to pay. Not the cleanest either. The Springfield branch does a much better job of... More

We stopped here for bagel, cream cheese, lox, capers onion to go. Although this is a chain and it is not NYC, the sandwich was great.

You can't go wrong with an order of bagels or baked goodies here. The review on sandwiches is mixed. The chicken salad on a recent visit was disappointing. The squares of chicken would have worked better in an actual salad. On a sandwich, not so much. It was messy and kind of bland. The tuna salad was not as messy,... More

This is THE place to go Saturday or Sunday morning for coffee and a bagel and relax reading the paper or your favorite book. Really good fresh made bagels with all types and variety of spreads. Tried the Green Chile bagel and it was great.
